  • 1 Saucepan
  • 1 High speed blender


  • 1 400g tin black beans
  • 1 brown onion
  • 1 carrot
  • 2 sticks celery
  • 2 tbsp nutritional yeast
  • 1 l vegan stock
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp liquid smoke
  • 0.5 tsp chilli powder of your choosing (optional)
  • 1 tsp soy cream (optional)


  • Drain the and wash the black beans, save enough to garnish the soup at the end.
  • Fine dice the onion, carrot and celery (they will cook faster)
  • Add these to the saucepan with a splash of water and cook until onion has started to go transparent.
  • Add the beans to the pan and stir in.
  • Add the spices to the stock liquid, stir in and add to the pan.
  • Bring to the boil the reduce to a simmer for 20 minutes.
  • Add the soup to your blender and blitz until creamy smooth. A stick blender will do an adequate job but the silkyness you get from a high speed blender is well worth the investment!
  • Lightly drizzle the soy cream on top of the soup (optional)
  • Garnish with the black beans you reserved earlier and sprinkle some chilli flakes and fresh coriander over the top to serve.
